“LIKE a scene out of a movie” was how residents of Mount Lambert described yesterday’s shooting incident in the area, in which warring gang factions traded bullets with each other, resulting in three of them being injured.

The shooting took place shortly after midday, along a road that connects the Priority Bus Route (PBR) and Eastern Main Road, and in full view of motorists and members of the public. It showed that criminals were becoming more and more brazen since they no longer had any fear of committing crimes in broad daylight and for any and everyone to see, said one resident.
